The Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has issued a framework for action titled Making Eye Health a Population Health Imperative: Vision for Tomorrow. Recommendations include a call to action by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and coordinated surveillance for eye and vision health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
